I can just imagine this being said in Boulder: "Hey, what's that llama doing grazing there? Call the cops."

I happen to enjoy the law the dealers can show cars on Sundays. Because it makes it illegal for me to work on Sunday.

In Wheat Ridge you can't pump gas unless an attendant is on duty. That means no late night pay at the pump!

"Throwing missles at cars is illegal" Missile - an object that is forcibly propelled at a target, either by hand or from a mechanical weapon. How is this a dumb law?

Well maybe a few of them. But I think the author of the article was a little dumb. Several of the laws he listed as dumb are legitimate laws that need to stay on the book. Like throwing things at moving cars, pissing in public, vandalizing rocks at state parks, etc.

The liquor in grocery stores one has changed. You can buy wine at some Targets and the King Soopers on Leetsdale & Cherry Street has a full liquor section.

No , it has not changed. You can only buy liquor/wine at ONE each of the manlr chains. The law is basically that only 1 person/corporation is allowed to have a liquor license. No liquor store chains. Independent owners.

These don't seem dumb to me. Not lend a vacuum cleaner? Of course not, I don't want your infestations at my house. These laws aren't strange, but I do wonder why you say they are "lawn"?

If you can't lend your vacuum to your next-door neighbor, can you lend it to the one down the street?

Make sure you notify the dogs that their buddy is locked up. Who came up with that one? I always had a suspicion my dogs could read...

College students were putting old crap furniture out on their from porches. It was an eyesore and a fire hazard.

Pissing in public is illegal almost everywhere. Its considered a sex offense and you have to register as a sex offender.

THE ONE ABOUT THROWING A MISSILE AT CARS IS NOT DUMB EITHER. IT REFERS TO PEOPLE THROWING ROCKS OR ANYTHING.

So you can't urinate in public in Alamosa? Well, so much for going to that city! ;) But, I guess it's ok just down the road in Del Norte, right?

When I lived in Meeker, someone told me one of the laws was that it was illegal to operate a horseless carriage in city limits.
